Caption: Sea squirt colony (Perophora namei). Sea squirts (class Ascidiacea) are marine invertebrates which filter plankton from the water current which circulates through them. They are sedentary but have free-swimming larvae. In this species a colony consists of a number of zooids which bud off from a long slender stolon. Photographed in West Papua, Indonesia.
